2 Teacher BIBLE STUDY The tabernacle was complete. God now had a place where His glory could dwell without causing the Israelites to fear death. God had given His people laws from the mountain, and He gave them more rules for living and worshiping Him when He dwelled in the tabernacle. These rules are recorded in the Book of Leviticus. The reasoning behind Leviticus can be found in Leviticus 19:2. In Leviticus 17:11, God set apart the blood of a creature as the means for making atonement. This answers the question, Why did Jesus have to die? God s requirement for the forgiveness of sins was the shedding of blood: According to the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (Heb. 9:22). It is important to note a New Testament revelation about the sin offering. Hebrews 10:4 says, It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Then why did God require people to make sacrifices? The institution of a sacrifice was to point to something greater the ultimate sacrifice God would make by sending His own Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for the sins of the world once and for all. (See Eph. 1:7; Rom 5:9.) The Book of Leviticus contains many rules for the Israelite people, but we do not obey all the rules in Leviticus today because we trust Jesus, who obeyed the law perfectly for us. Many of the kids you teach will not be familiar with the Book of Leviticus. Use this session as an opportunity to emphasize God s holiness and His requirement of a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. Lead them to treasure Jesus as the perfect and final sacrifice that took away the sin of the world. (John 1:29) Younger Kids Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 6 Session LifeWay Christian Resources

4 The BIBLE STORY God Gave Rules for Sacrifice Leviticus 1 27 When Moses was with God on Mount Sinai, God gave him many rules and laws that the Israelites were to obey. God required the people to obey His law perfectly because God is holy. He cannot be around sin. He wants His people to be holy. Now that the tabernacle was built, Moses didn t have to go up the mountain anymore. He could go into the tabernacle to meet with God. From the tabernacle, God gave Moses more laws. These laws told the people of Israel how to worship God and how to live holy lives. First, God gave rules about offerings. Offerings are gifts people give to God, such as money or jewelry. Sometimes offerings included animals. Grain and bread could also be given as offerings. Different types of offerings were needed at different times. When people wanted to praise God, they gave burnt offerings. When they wanted to say they were sorry for sin, they gave a sin offering. God also gave rules about the priests. Priests made the sacrifices that God commanded. The priests took care of the tabernacle, and they taught the people God s rules for living holy lives. Aaron and his sons served as the priests. God gave them rules about how to offer sacrifices. God told Moses about a special day that would happen once a year. It was called the Day of Atonement. Atonement means making right what had been wrong. The people needed to atone for their sin to make their relationship with God right again. On the Day of Atonement, the people paid for their sins. On that day, the high priest offered a special sacrifice. He took the blood of an animal and went into the most holy place, a very special room in the tabernacle. Then the high priest sprinkled the blood on the mercy seat of the ark of the covenant, which was a wooden box covered in gold that contained the stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were written. The sacrifice was important because it paid for the sins of the people of Israel. God said, On that day your sin will be paid for. You will be made pure and clean. You will be clean from all of your sins in my sight. Younger Kids Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 6 Session LifeWay Christian Resources

5 God also gave the Israelites rules about how they should live. He said, Be holy because I, Yahweh your God, am holy. God told the people how to be holy. God said, Do not tell lies. Do not cheat. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Obey my rules. Christ Connection: The Book of Leviticus contains many rules for the Israelites, but we do not obey all the rules in Leviticus today because we trust Jesus, who obeyed the law perfectly for us. The Israelites had to make a blood sacrifice for their sin every year. Jesus sacrificed His blood on the cross to pay for our sin once and for all. (Hebrews 7:26-27) When we trust in Christ, God forgives us of our sin LifeWay Christian Resources

Share a time you were a kid and got in trouble. What punishment did you get? Allow the kids to share something they got in trouble for, too. Say Did you each deserve the punishment you got? We deserve punishment when we do something wrong. God s people, the Israelites, sinned against God just like you and me. They deserved punishment. Jesus had not come yet as their sacrifice.

Maybe you like to eat it as part of a sandwich or the bottom part of a pizza. Have you ever thought of offering bread to God? That may sound odd to you, but it wouldn t if you were an Israelite. As a grain offering, bread was one of the options God gave His people for an offering to Him. In the wilderness, grain would have been of great value. It wouldn t have looked like this. It would have looked more like a thick cracker because it had to be unleavened, which means it would not puff up like the bread you are used to. Timeline map (1 minute) Leader Let s look at our timeline. Let s see where we ve been and where we are headed. God freed His Younger Kids Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 6 Session LifeWay Christian Resources

9 people from the Egyptians. He gave His people rules or commandments to live by. Then He instructed them on how to build a tabernacle so He could be with them. Now, we find ourselves here: God Gave Rules for Sacrifice. Big picture question (1 minute) Leader A sacrifice is something brought to God to express obedience, love, thanksgiving, or the need for forgiveness. Did you know your Bible tells us of the greatest sacrifice ever? Jesus gave His life so we could be forgiven. If you have your Bible, let s see it. Awesome! Are you ready for our big picture question then? Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Give You Glory song Ten Commandments song Key Passage Slides or Posters Sing (5 minutes) Leader You see, the Israelites were unable to keep the Ten Commandments God gave them. They could not be holy like God. God could not remain with people who were sinful. They didn t have Jesus as their sacrifice yet. God knew that and had a plan. He would give them rules on how to sacrifice to Him as payment for their sin. Aren t you glad that when we trust in Jesus sacrifice for our sin, we are free to know and love Him? Once you accept Jesus sacrifice to pay for your sins, you are able to give God glory in how you live. Sing together Give You Glory. Key passage (4 minutes) Leader It s time to see if you remember the Ten Commandments God gave His people. Show the slides or posters of this unit s key passage, Exodus 20:1-17. Lead the boys and girls to read the key passage together LifeWay Christian Resources

10 Leader The last six commandments were about how God s people must treat others. They must honor their parents. They must not kill, break their marriage promises, steal, lie about each other, and want other people s things. We all struggle with one or more of these rules. We can t live without sinning, but Jesus did. He lived perfectly and died to cover our sins. And now we have new hearts that want to follow the Ten Commandments. Let s sing them together. Sing together Ten Commandments. God Gave Rules for Sacrifice video Bibles, 1 per kid Bible Story Picture Slide or Poster Tell the Bible story (10 minutes) Leader No matter how hard they tried, the Israelites could not obey all of God s commandments all the time. Since God is holy, their sin had to be paid for, or God could not be with them. That brings us to our Bible story, and what a grain sacrifice is about. More importantly, we will answer our big picture question. Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Open your Bible to Leviticus. Choose to tell the Bible story in your own words using the script provided, or show the God Gave Rules for Sacrifice video. Leader Moses met with God in the tabernacle, and God gave him more rules to explain to the people. These rules would explain how they should worship and how they could live holy lives. Many of these rules were about offerings or sacrifices. When the people wanted to praise God, they gave offerings of money, jewelry, grain and bread, and sometimes animals. Much of Leviticus is about how to give a sin offering. A sin offering required the blood of an animal. The Israelites made this sacrifice at least once a year on the Day of Atonement. This may be hard for us to understand, but the blood of the animals Younger Kids Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 6 Session LifeWay Christian Resources

11 was a temporary solution for the Israelites because they didn t have Jesus, who gave His blood as a sacrifice for sin. Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Because God is holy, His forgiveness requires a payment for sin. Jesus made the ultimate payment for sin with His death on the cross. Ask the following review questions: 1. Where did God meet with Moses to give him rules about sacrifices? (the tabernacle, Leviticus 1:1) 2. Who did God choose to present the offerings? (Aaron s sons or the priests, Leviticus 1:7-8) 3. What was the Day of Atonement? (The Israelites would give a sin offering on this day each year, Leviticus 16:29-30) 4. God told the Israelites to live what kind of life? (holy, Leviticus 19:2) 5. Who is the perfect sacrifice who gave His blood for us? (Jesus) Not Enough video Discussion starter video (4 minutes) Leader The Israelites had to make a payment for their sin. Often, things we need and want come with a price. Play Not Enough. Leader Have you ever wanted something so bad, but just didn t have the money for it? The payment for sin is something the Israelites couldn t pay either. No matter how hard they tried, they all sinned. The only payment for sin is blood. A perfect animal had to die to pay for their sins. The problem is that this wasn t enough. The life of even the most perfect animal wouldn t make the people holy. They needed a better substitute. That s why we have Jesus. The Israelites imperfect sacrifice points us to the true, perfect sacrifice. In Matthew 26:28, Jesus told His LifeWay Christian Resources

12 disciples at the Last Supper that His blood would cover the sins of many. There is no need to ever have another animal sacrifice. Jesus blood is all that is needed. The Gospel: God s Plan for Me (optional) Use Scripture and the guide provided with this session to explain to boys and girls how to become a Christian.

Big Picture Question Slide or Poster Prayer (4 minutes) Show the big picture question slide or poster. Leader Here s one more quick look at our big picture question. Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Because God is holy, His forgiveness requires a payment for sin. Jesus made the ultimate payment for sin with His death on the cross.

Invite the kids in the second section to give the first sentence of the answer and the third section to give the second sentence of the answer. Swap roles and repeat as time allows.

13 The Gospel: God s Plan for Me Ask kids if they have ever heard the word gospel. Clarify that the word gospel means good news. It is the message about Christ, the kingdom of God, and salvation. Use the following guide to share the gospel with kids. God rules. Explain to kids that the Bible tells us God created everything, and He is in charge of everything. Invite a volunteer to read Genesis 1:1 from the Bible. Read Revelation 4:11 or Colossians 1:16-17 aloud and explain what these verses mean. We sinned. Tell kids that since the time of Adam and Eve, everyone has chosen to disobey God. (Romans 3:23) The Bible calls this sin. Because God is holy, God cannot be around sin. Sin separates us from God and deserves God s punishment of death. (Romans 6:23) God provided. Choose a child to read John 3:16 aloud. Say that God sent His Son Jesus, the perfect solution to our sin problem, to rescue us from the punishment we deserve. It s something we, as sinners, could never earn on our own. Jesus alone saves us. Read and explain Ephesians 2:8-9. Jesus gives. Share with kids that Jesus lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again. Because Jesus gave up His life for us, we can be welcomed into God s family for eternity. This is the best gift ever! Read Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; or 1 Peter 3:18. We respond. Tell kids that they can respond to Jesus. Read Romans 10:9-10,13. Review these aspects of our response: Believe in your heart that Jesus alone saves you through what He s already done on the cross. Repent, turning from self and sin to Jesus. Tell God and others that your faith is in Jesus. Offer to talk with any child who is interested in responding to Jesus LifeWay Christian Resources

Key Passage: Exodus 20:1-17 Unit Christ Connection: God instructed His covenant people how to live holy lives in an unholy world. This sustained their relationship with God until the perfect plan was revealed through Jesus Christ. Key Passage Slides or Posters dry erase board and markers (optional) Key passage activity (5 minutes) Make sure the key passage, Exodus 20:1-17, is visible for each child, either as the printed posters or written on a dry erase board. Read the passage together. Say If you do something wrong at your house, what happens? You get punished. The Israelites sinned against God. They couldn t keep the Ten Commandments. They deserved punishment. Since God can t be where sin is, their punishment would have been to be forever separated from God. Because God loved His people and promised to be their God, He provided animal sacrifices until Jesus came as the true sacrifice. Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Because God is holy, His forgiveness requires a payment for sin. Jesus made the ultimate payment for sin with His death on the cross. And now we are free to know and love God and obey His Ten Commandments. Allow volunteers to share all the commandments they can remember.
